Program Description:
The First Generation Study Abroad Fellowship is a continuation of a new funding opportunity from 2016.  We hope to provide at least two awards of $2,000 to be used on a GSU Study Abroad program for either the Maymester 2017 or Summer 2017 term.  This award could be combined with the IEF scholarship, but not the GES.  (You should, however, apply to any and all scholarships for which you are eligible.)  To apply, you must be a degree seeking GSU student in good standing who is also a FIRST GENERATION STUDENT.  This is defined as a person whose mother and father did not complete a 4-year college degree.  You must also complete an essay and provide the contact information for one reference.  If awarded, students will have the funds posted to their account for the term in which they are studying abroad.  Additionally, awardees will be required to "pay it back" by helping the Study Abroad Programs office with outreach relating to their study abroad program and this fellowship.
